Alien RPG on Roll20

Space is vast, dark, and not your friend. Gamma rays and neutrino bursts erupt from dying stars to cook you alive, black holes tear you apart, and the void itself boils your blood and seizes your brain. Try to scream and...

Don't see a time that works for you?

Additional Details

How to prepare

Although the rules are based on the acclaimed Year Zero Engine, used in award-winning games such as Tales from the Loop and Mutant: Year Zero, they are adapted and further developed to fully support and enhance the core themes of ALIEN: horror and action in the cold darkness of space. If you have played those games before, you have a headstart. If not, no big deal - we will go through the mechanics before the game starts. Please make sure that you have a good mic and/or webcam and a good internet connection. Please also have an account on Roll20 so we can get started as soon as possible. Dice rolls and all character sheets will be utilized in game via Roll20. The starter set rules will be shared once the invite has been sent to each player. Although prior knowledge of the game is not expected, it is a nice to have.

What I provide

All art, maps, sound, and music will be provided over Roll20.

What else should you know

I will provide a thorough (though brief) ruleset walkthrough before gameplay begins, very forgiving for new players. All else is on the players!

Gameplay Details

The Alien RPG is relatively new, and thus requires a bit of explanation of the ruleset for new players. I expect this game will take about two hours, with perhaps 30 minutes at the start to go through game rules. Pre-generated characters will be used for the scenario, and we will be using sound effects and music from the Alien universe. This scenario is not for the faint of heart, and involves body horror, adult themes and language, and overall expect a "Alien" movie feel to this. I can't lie to you about your chances, but you have my sympathies.
